  1. 1991 Lincoln Continental STRUCTURE:FRAME AND MEMBERS NHTSA Campaign #98V323000

    • Date Announced: DECEMBER 16, 1998
    • Vehicles Affected: 2,697,000

    Summary: Vehicle description: Passenger vehicles originally sold or currently registered in Connecticut, Delaware, District of Columbia, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Kentucky, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, Nebraska, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Vermont, Virginia, West virgnia, and Wisconsin. The rear lower subframe mount plate nut can experience stress corrosion cracking if subjected to long term exposure to road salts. This can result in fracture and loss of the structural integrity of the subframe mount attachment. Detachment of the body mounts at the rear corners of the subframe, which supports the engine and transmission, allows the rear corners of the subframe to drop.

    Consequence: If both rear corners drop, steering would become suddenly very difficult, affecting vehicle control and increasing the risk of a crash.

    Actions: Dealers will install subframe rear mount bolts, reinforcement plates, and plate nuts. For detailed information & supporting documents, see the official NHTSA page concerning recall #98V323000 »

    Consequence: Severely corroded rotors may fracture or separate nearthe inner edges of the brake discs resulting in reduced braking effectiveness, higher than normal pedal efforts, loud grinding noises, and moderate pulls whenthe brakes are applied. Reduced braking effectiveness may increase minimumstopping distances, possibly resulting in an accident.

    Actions: Replace front brake rotors with full cast front brake rotors. For detailed information & supporting documents, see the official NHTSA page concerning recall #91V134000 »
